Aptasia anemones


Recommended Posts

A couple of Peppermint Shrimp, that are not fed much, should take care of the issue. You could even setup a quarantine tank with the Peppermints to deal with the problem pieces.


I personally don’t like keeping Peppermint Shrimp long-term, but they have always taken care of Aiptasia for me. After leaving them in for a few weeks after the problem is no longer detectable, I end up giving them away.

I think I may have one. It's just a little guy that came with one of my live rocks. How would I know if it's an aptasia, and why are they bad?


I second the above. Natural predation > Chemical warfare.

Google it. Then search under images and you'll see plenty of pictures.


They're bad because they're unsightly and aggressive.

I'm not disagreeing with the above. But, if you don't want Peppermint Shrimp, Joe's Juice has always done the trick for me.
